Dairy of a Jewish teenager forms the backbone of this museum's exhibit. Interesting, I learnt many new things today. We must not forget the lessons from history.

I strongly recommend visiting the museum before the dinner or lunch in famous Karzimierz District. It may take more than one hour. Before the Second World War, 25% of Krakow's population were Jews living in Karzimierz. Probably before the war even 30-40% of all the...More
